Weekly Report -- 27/07/2012
Saw a patch come through this week for other instruction support, which made me do a bit of re-think on the way I've implemented the metadata instruction so far. Although this patchset is not particularly near ready, it may be useful for my patch to work against it. It seems that for supporting instructions as commandline input, I may end up running the same set of checks multiple times to verify correctness of the metadata instruction after it's ported to internal structures.
This isn't exactly elegant, but the way which actions are included in various packet types in OpenFlow mean it's the only way to proceed. I tinkered with this against the new patchset, but didn't make much progress. Hoping to post this once more for review in the next week.
